Beginning November 4, the Elmhurst Park District's registration website will have a fresh new look! The new registration site, will provide a friendlier design and easier user experience. Updates include:
The brochure will continue to be available virtually, but beginning in winter, we are bringing back a print version. If you would like a printed copy mailed to you, please enter your info at the link below. The last day to request a print brochure for next season is October 22, 2021. This is a one-time sign up. Once you are on the list, you will get a brochure each season.
For the past two months, staff at the Elmhurst Park District has been planning for the expansion of programming in spring and summer. The District’s virtual brochure went live on February 19 and resident registration for programs took place this past Saturday. In what was reminiscent of pre-COVID days, within minutes of the 8:00 a.m. registration, many classes were full with wait lists.
Recently, Governor Pritzker announced that Tier 3 mitigations will go through Saturday, January 9. As a result, programs scheduled to begin on January 4 will be postponed or will be held virtually. Participants will be contacted directly regarding the status of their program.
Registration for Club Ed., a self-directed E-Learning program, opens today at 9 a.m. Registration will be open through September 15. Sign-up for this program on our registration page. If you do not currently have a household account, please be sure to create one prior to registration.
Mark your calendar with our upcoming registration dates:
Saturday, February 22 at 8 a.m.: Resident Registration for spring gymnastics, summer gymnastics camps, golf camps, aquatics programs and swim camps
Saturday, February 29 at 8 a.m.: Resident General Registration for all spring programs and all other summer camps, including Funseekers, Dance Camps, Early Childhood Camps, Theatre Camps and Ultimate Sports Camp. Also, registration for Courts Plus Members, including Courts Plus Summer Camps

Monday, March 9 at 8 a.m.: Non-Resident Registration for all programs
The Fall Brochure will be delivered the week of July 15! It's packed with details about upcoming community events, our Annual Report and fall program information. Mark your calendars for our registration dates.
Staggering the dates of registration, based on feedback from the community, has improved the registration software’s performance and the District intends to continue with the software through 2020, as long as this performance continues.
With this in mind, program registration for Gymnastics will begin Saturday July 27 at 8 a.m. General Registration and Courts Plus Registration will occur the following week on Saturday, August 3 at 8 a.m.
Elmhurst Park District is busy preparing the Spring Brochure and is looking forward to the upcoming season.
Just as in past years, it will help you plan your summer too, with summer camps, aquatics programs and pool passes included in the brochure.
During the Park District’s last registration event, the decision was made to hold gymnastics registration on a separate day from general registration in an effort to reduce the high volume of traffic on the District’s current registration software system.
As a result of issues with the Elmhurst Park District’s registration software, the District made changes to the first day of registration process beginning with winter registration. Those changes included hosting gymnastics registration on a separate day and time in an effort to alleviate the burden on the software system. That registration took place this past weekend and went smoothly.

A survey was recently conducted to gauge the best day and time for gymnastics registration. Overwhelmingly, residents chose Saturday, December 1 at 8:00 a.m. Registration for general programs will then be held on Saturday, December 8 at 8:00 a.m.
Update: The survey is now closed. If you still have questions or comments regarding registration, contact us and let us know!
It’s no secret that two of the last three registrations have been frustrating and difficult for residents. Therefore, staff will be making changes to the first day of registration beginning with winter registration in December.
The Elmhurst Park District Board and staff share the frustration felt by residents on Saturday and we sincerely apologize that once again it took an unacceptable amount of time for some to register for programs. We were hopeful that we had found a solution that would work for our residents and were disheartened that that was not the case.
